Remote but great value
This is pretty much last off the rack before you leave Munduk proper and you're a very solid 20-minute uphill stroll from the heart of the village.
But if you're looking for some peace and quiet, Melanting could be well worth the walk. As with Manah Liang and Puri Lumbung down the road, the rooms here are mostly bathroom downstairs, bedroom and balcony upstairs. In this case they are spacious, with comfortable decks and, in some cases, great views. Note that thanks to a copse of trees in the centre, not all the superior rooms have a scenic view. The standard rooms have a lush garden view and shouldn't be dismissed offhand, but, for the money, better value is had closer to town. Probably the only red flag here is the restaurant. While we didn't eat here, it's a charmless affair in a marked contrast to the tempting rooms. If you're just planning on hanging out for some quiet time, you could do much worse than here.
